    David S #2's Note:

    Without dropping a bundle on a veritical spit and preparing 50 pounds of layered souvlaki, this is as close as you can get to the real deal right in your kitchen. Having tried many recipes, I scrapped all and started from scratch with a simple pulled pork roast recipe. So, the texture is not exact, but the flavor is nearly identical to what I've tasted in Iraklion, Fira, Mytilini, and mainland Greece.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      - Mix the dried herbs, water, olive oil, lemon juice, soy sauce, and vinegar in a bowl deep enough to hold the pork roast.
    2. 2
      - Coat pork roast with the marinade.
    3. 3
      - Slice the garlic and onion and spread over top of meat.
    4. 4
      - Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, turning and coating several times.
    5. 5
      - Place all in roasting pan or dish.
    6. 6
      - Tent and roast at 300 degrees 4 to 4.5 hours, basting often with its own juices. Should have internal temp of at least 170 degrees.
    7. 7
      - After removing from oven, allow to cool to touch.
    8. 8
      - Remove meat from bone, discarding any fat and/or grissle.
    9. 9
      - Mix all sauce and bits from the pan together with the pulled meat and salt to taste.
    10. 10
      - Meat should be very moist but if necessary, add olive oil and water to moisten especially if reheating.
    11. 11
      - Before serving, dry fry (no oil) the meat in a non-stick skillet. This will produce crispy golden brown bits nearly identical to that from a rotisserie.

      Great substitute for the real thing, especially if you can't get near a gyro or souvlaki, like us in the East of Scotland. Just back from a holiday in Greece and this was better than some of the souvlaki we had - not anywhere like a gyro, but as a souvlaki it is a bloody good stand-in. Served with homemade tzaziki, red onions, tomato and chips (fries) in a pita, just like in Greece. Shame it doesn't have more reviews because it deserves to.

      Great recipe and very good instructions. I made this for dinner and my husband and I loved it. The kitchen smelled fantastic and the pork came out very tender and pulled apart easily. I served it with greek salad, hummous, tzaziki and a warm pita.
